What's good fellow sports fans,

Since I left my position as sports editor of my campus newspaper in December of 2006 for obvious reasons (read: graduating and stuff), I've truly missed being involved in the HBCU sports scene.  Now that I'm a full-time reporter for a local paper in Maryland, the question is how could I possibly get back into it, even from afar?  You've guessed it -- blogging.  My site, Sports On The Yard will soon feature interviews, commentary and other content relevant to Black College Athletics.

Feel free to bookmark the link http://sportsontheyard.wordpress.com and support Black College Athletics.

Your friendly neighborhood sports journalism hustler,

Bo knows... hunting? [Nov. 28th, 2007|01:56 pm]

Bo Jackson's still out there, or so this ESPN.com article leads us to believe...

Bo Knows Best
From behind the wheel of an obscenely muscled Dodge pickup, Vincent Edward "Bo" Jackson is reminiscing about the time he took down a 300-pound bear from point-blank range with a .45-caliber pistol. This was a decade ago in Alaska, a few years after Bo retired from organized sports and a few days before the Princess of Wales died in a car crash, and if you're wondering whether Bo was scared, hell no, Bo was not scared. Not even when that bear got so close Bo and his hunting companion could see the hairs bolt upright like pine needles on the back of its neck. Ross Dettman for ESPN.comSpecial right now in the produce aisle: the greatest athlete of his generation.

"I wasn't scared," Bo says. "I wasn't scared because I knew I could outrun my white buddy. You've got to think about these things, man." The way Bo tells it, he waited as long as he could, then he fired a slug into that bear's skull. The bear kept coming. His buddy yelled, "Shoot him again!" and Bo shot him again, firing another bullet directly into the bear's noggin. Bo 2, Bear 0. And then Bo skinned that bear on the spot and dragged the 70-pound hide the half-mile back to camp. Of course he did. Read more...Collapse )

Anyone else use ESPN Fan Profiles? I just started messing with it recently, and as such, I don't have any friends. It's kinda like facebook meets ESPN, near as I can tell. So if you're on and you see fit--hit me up!

I know we're all about tired of the story about now, but I wonder is anybody else watching this on ESPN...

I don't have much to say about it, but it is interesting hearing people sound off on the whole situation and how the media blew it up, how come the Falcons didn't try to rein him in from the jump, what he means to Black Atlanta, etc.

If you're watching it, what are your thoughts?

Is race the reason Delaware won't play Delaware State?
By Jeff Pearlman
Special to Page 2

Dear Delaware football recruit:

On behalf of alumni across the nation, I would like to congratulate you on being recruited to play football at the University of Delaware. As you know, our Blue Hens are six-time national champions and perennially one of the top Division I-AA programs in the country. We have produced dozens of NFL players, ranging from Rich Gannon and Scott Brunner to Ivory Sully and Mike Adams. With our explosive passing attack, I am confident that a wide receiver like you could thrive here.

Delaware's a I-AA national power, but it won't even play its next-door neighbor.
I also have been informed, however, that you are a student of character, decency and open-mindedness. That, more than anything, is why I am writing this letter: to urge you (and your fellow recruits) not to attend my beloved university.

That's right. Say no to the Blue Hens.

Allow me to be blunt. The University of Delaware's persistent refusal to face Delaware State University in football is cowardly, pig-headed, self-righteous and, worst of all, oozing with racism. As you might know, the two schools -- separated by a mere 50-minute drive from Newark to Dover -- are both ranked in the top 25 of Division I-AA polls. For more than 30 years now, Delaware State has tried to arrange a football game with Delaware, only to be rebuffed time after time. "Name the place and the day, and we'll be there," Rick Costello, Delaware State's athletic director, told me recently. "Delaware-Delaware State would be great for the state, for the students, for ticket sales and school spirit. It's a natural, isn't it?"

You would think so. But within the Delaware athletic department, a law has been established that the Blue Hens will never, ever, ever, ever, ever schedule the Hornets. "We're interested in exploring, but there's no flexibility," Edgar Johnson, the school's athletic director, once told me. "Anyhow, when you begin playing each other it becomes divisive."Read more...Collapse )

Interesting fact: Delaware is probably the state in which a matchup between the white land grant/state namesake and the black land grant/state namesake makes the most sense; DE's the only state that's got both in which they each compete in the same division (IAA/FCS).

If you're having a perfectly good day and want to ruin it with ignorance, check out the following article on ESPN:

Report: McNabb says black QBs under more pressure

And read the associated comments. It's an eye-gouging good time! Don't say you haven't been warned.

happy 48th birthday to Earvin "Magic" Johnson!

What will you guys remember Magic for?  The fancy passes and the clutch play, his entreprenuerial skills, or admitting his sexual irresponsibility and living with HIV for 16 years?
